The last exam is over, my brain feels swollen, yet my heart is finally at ease. It is as if I can breathe now! We were going to do some Christmas shopping, and what is most important get a Christmas tree, but Evgeny's car broke on his way home and it took me and him a whole day to take care of everything associated with this issue. So using some quite time at home I decided to wrap some presents. I was inspired by cakies to try and use whatever is around the house to wrap the presents, and boy did I have fun at it!
I was so excited, because I ended up using all kinds of things that I kept, unaware that I would ever need them. The presents feel personal, every one of them has a special touch to it, and at the same time my heart is not going to skip a beat as I watch money going down the drain, when the presents are unwrapped (not that I really worry about it that much, but wrapping paper is expansive, especially the nice and pretty kind).
It was therapeutical to just spend a couple of hours on creating a character for each present, leaving on it something to recognize and enjoy for the receiver, without feeling guilty for wasting that "valuable study time". I am sure going to enjoy some free time these nine month while applying for my DH program and trying to get all the ends tight.
